The Rotunda: The World's Jolliest Newspaper

The Rotunda's Christmas edition is here! 


International mailing systems have let their standards slip recently. Each continent’s central postage outlet has somehow mistaken ‘North Pole’ for ‘North Fitzroy’, and thousands of Christmas lists have ended up in the hands of this very publication. We’ve decided against publishing any of them. You’re welcome. 

Indeed, our dogs noses are getting a little redder, middle-aged men who did Movember are letting their facial hair get white and full and the 11 tram is steaming down St Georges Road like the Polar Express. There’s magic in the air, which our map of Edinburgh Gardens on pages 4-5 illustrates. 

So, as we say goodbye to 2023, take this issue as a parting gift. It’s got stories: about the cricket club volunteer who was pals with the late queen, the local woman who competed in the World Jigsaw Puzzle Championship, the ethos behind The Old Bar on Johnston Street, Ludo's vendetta against Santa and more. 

Merry Christmas and a happy holidays to everyone!  The new edition is available in print – delivered to your door if you're a North Fitzroy resident and to cafes around the area. (The full list on our Instagram).
